It’s now officially 30 days before moving to Canada.
By this time, most of our family and friends already know about us leaving. Most of them have been all smiles and supportive, but of course there are those who allow their doubts and concerns to come to the surface. We can’t blame them though since they’re just looking out for our best interests based on what they believe in. Besides, uprooting your life and moving halfway across the world is an undertaking that’s almost impossible to fully comprehend.
These days, whenever conversations steer towards Canada, there’s one question that’s almost always asked.
Good news for those who are thinking of moving to Canada!
According to reports, the province of Nova Scotia will reopen its Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) that has been closed since 2015.
It’s officially called the Novia Scotia Demand: Express Entry and it will be open to candidates who are already in the Express Entry pool. Successful applicants will be awarded an additional 600 points, which will in essence assure them of an Invitation to Apply (ITA).
Over the weekend, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced plans to implement some more changes to the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) used by Express Entry (EE) that will be implemented on June 6, 2017.
There will be three specific changes that IRCC will implement, let’s go through them one by one.
Three months to go before finally moving to Canada!
Last week, we finally booked our one-way tickets to Canada. It suddenly feels all too surreal and time seems to go by quicker now that we’ve started to accomplish the major things one needs to do before migrating to another country.
It is indeed a very bittersweet time in our lives.
We decided to leave on the month of June for one main reason – the weather. Since we’ll be going to Prince Edward Island, we wanted to be able to take advantage of the great summer season of the island. Also, the relatively warm temperatures during that season will allow us an easier transition to Canada’s climate.
